Missing teeth can create a huge problem – both socially and functionally. Fortunately, we have a number of options available to replace your teeth in ways that are aesthetic and restore your function.
A traditional way to replace teeth is using a dental bridge. This prosthetic fills in the space left by the missing tooth to complete your smile and make it easier to enjoy your favorite foods.
A more modern way to replace teeth is using dental implants. This option has an extra feature. It includes an artificial titanium post that is placed surgically into your jaw bone and mimics the action of your natural root. This means that it will help prevent the bone loss that so frequently accompanies tooth loss.
Implants can be completed with a crown or, if you are missing multiple teeth, they can be used to secure a bridge or even dentures.
